Hutchinson Mystery Men

 

William Hutchison – 3rd Great Grandfather (for family reference, this is Robert Lee Updegraff’s great grandfather)

  • Missing 1900 census
  • Unknown death date (estimate 
  • Unknown birth date (estimate 1821-1825)
  • No actual sources for connection to parents (DNA has confirmed though)

Williams parents were Forgus Hutchison (1798-1860) and Jane Campbell (1800-1872).

William appears in the Census from 1850-1880 and is living with his wife and children.  His birth years range from 1815-1825.  There are multiple un-sourced ancestry.com trees that list a 1904 death date and the nickname “Fox Bill” or “William Fox,” but no one has any idea where it came from.

I couldn’t find William’s will at the Butler County office, but I did find his father’s *very long* one with lists of items for various people, but never mentioning specifically his son William.  The 1900 Census would certainly provide more information, but I haven’t been able to find it.

William Hutchison married Ann Marie Jamison and had the following known children:

  • Forgus M Hutchison 1846-1912, m. Eliza Fleming
  • Mary Elvira Hutchison 1848-1915, m. John Elliott Snowden
  • Thompson Jamison Hutchison 1851-1907, m. Alice Brady
  • Margaret A Hutchison 1853-1920, m. — Thompson
  • Amanda Jane Hutchison 1857-1916, m. Gilbert Ewing
  • Alexander Campbell Hutchinson 1858-1940 (2nd great grandfather), m. Loretta Zillifro
  • Euphemia E Hutchison 1860-1906, m. Edward M Dieter
  • Rosetta Hutchison 1864-1910, m. Lincoln Saylor
  • William Hutchison 1869-bef 1880

 

Alexander Campbell Hutchinson – 2nd Great Grandfather (for family reference, this is Robert Lee Updegraff’s grandfather)

Update February 2017: Alexander Campbell is less of a mystery thanks to finding his death certificate, obituary, and release of the 1940 census.  Updated blog post: Alexander Campbell Hutchison.

    I think you should put all this in a book. It’s so interesting.

    While doing some work on my family tree I ran across your interesting page. If you are interested, I have a photo portrait of Rosetta Hutchison 1864-1910 and her husband Lincoln Saylor. I suspect it is their wedding photo. I would be happy to send you jpgs, if you are interested.

    Best regards,
